Oxum, Oshun

Oxum or Oshun is the Orisha of love, life, marriage, fertility and beauty, the African goddess of the sweet waters. Oshun is worshipped in Candomblé and Umbanda (Afro-Brazilian religions) and also in Santeria and Lukumi. All those religions draw inspiration from the African Diaspora featuring aspects of the religion of the Yoruba Orisha religion. Orishas  if you don't know are religious deities that are said to represent human characteristics such as bravery, love and honor.
